president george w. bush recovering after doctors perform a serious heart -- find a serious heart condition and perform a dangerous procedure. >>> claiming the government's not broke and that the feds have a right to collect more money out of your pocket. >> the bottom line is we're not broke. there's plenty of money. it's just the government doesn't have it. the government has a right, the government and the people of the united states have a right to run the programs of the united states.

familiar? some say it sounds like a decade ago when he heard george w. bush make his case for war in iraq. the similarities are just a few. take a listen. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with bilogical and chemical weapons. it possesses ballistic missiles and promotes international terror and seeks nuclear weapons. >> my next guest says there are far more differences between president bush's action in iraq ten years ago and president obama's desire to act in syria. jane newton small is time magazine's correspondent. good to see you as always. we should let our audience know setting up those similarities, that's the first line from your article. tell us why you think they're not similar. >> well, first of all, the object of the action and that regime change. about ten years ago george w. bush really wanted to topple hussein. barack obama does not want to topple assad because they're very worried if they do there will be a vacuum of power in syria and it will become a failed state and al qaeda could take over.
an answer to. >> george bush is weighing in. he admits this is a tough choice for president obama but he also adds he's been no fan of the syrian president assad. >> i can comment about this. the president's got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever. backing him up. >> what has syria been like for the u.s. in the eight years you served? the feeling they had in supporting the insurgency, there was no doubt about that, am i correct? >> i was not fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran. he's made mischief. >> made mischief and for a long time he felt toward america. >> and the president will have to make a tough decision. >> what about the rest of the world saying we're not too sure. we're going to wait for the u.n. you've been through that before. >> the president has to make a tough call. i know you're trying to rope me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> assad making mischief. another former president weighing in. jimmy carter says the u.s. should not take unilateral action against syria. in statement former pr
will proceed on that basis. >> that this hurt britains relationship with america. >> one thing george w. bush used to say about tony blare is once tony blare gave his word we are followed through with it. quite clearly, president obama and david cameron have had a number of talks and from a white house perspective, cameron will be proven to be not able to deliver. >> the specials relationship was forged in the second word war. there have been ups and downs. some got on bet than others, but it has endured through the decades. although it's a friendship the british, the junior partners always probably cared about more than the americans. >> the british parliament has who you mill 80ed david cameron, but there are ministers in his government will worry that it has somehow diminished britain's place in the world and helped make it a less important international player. >> i spoke to one of the conservative rebels, an m.p. who voted against british military involvement in syria. >> britain is still an economic power, but our state is relative to other countries around the world sadly diminishing a
. the president is going off on vacation but the last commander in chief, george w. bush, also took his share of r and r. at this point in george w. bush's presidency, mark knoller with cbs figured this out, george w. bush had spent 367 days at his ranch in texas or at his family's compound in kennebunkport, maine. that, of course, according to mark knoller who says also, that president obama, who doesn't own a vacation home or have a family compound, has only spent 92 days of his presidency on vacation and before he heads out of town he's going to make more news. the president will be holding a news conference at the white house at 3:00 p.m. and, you know, i just got to say, and i always go back, ed rendell, to a maureen dowd column talking about first ladies and who the great first ladies were and how pat nixon was great at making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that would relax richard nixon and as maureen said and she wasn't being sarcastic or snippy at all, if that put the president's head in a better place, to make decisions regarding china or the economy or -- then that's exactly what th
in eight years of george bush? >> my producer just coughed up a hairball. >>sorry. >>just be grateful current tv doesn't come in "smell-o-vision" >> oh come on! the sweatshirt is nice and all, but i could use a golden lasso. (vo)only on current tv. this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a l
generation, i think, is unmatched. >> we share former president george w. bush put out a statement and our country has come a long way since that bright afternoon 50 years ago yet our journey to justice is not complete just to the east of the lincoln memorial. there on the national mall or president whose story reflects the promise of america will help us honor the man who responded to millions who redeemed that promise. that is the words of former president george w. bush. we are in the middle of a remarkable confluence of event today. president obama marking a tribute to the power of a peaceful demonstration while considering military action? nsyria. let's bring back the gaggle. the work at hand of governing the country and the national security interest moves on and we are going to hear from the president today and it could be within 24 hours that the country hears from him again trying to defend military action. >> that's right. it's also nobel peace prize winner that lends irony -- >> which is why he used that speech to defend war? >> right. >> he knew there was something he was going
of the -- you could -- does the ghost of tony blair and george w. bush and saddam hussein hung heavily over parliament? >> absolutely. in all the -- not just skepticism, almost cynicism about the what the government says about the intelligence was the back drop. it's larger than that. i think something has been going on for years, if not decades in europe, gradual weakening of commitment to defense, preoccupation of -- >> what do you make of o-- ow hm france saying we need a political solution. i would love france to come forward with this magic political solution. this is like richard nixon's secret plan to end vietnam in 1968. there's not one. >> exactly. there's not going to be a political solution to syria. syria sill in the relatively early phases over a prolonged civil war. what's interesting about britain, a country that distanced itself from europe over economic issues and now distancing itself from the united states over strategic issues. this is small britain, small europe. we've ended the era -- >> why is that? how does europe find itself in a position or britain where it's separ
. there is an inspector general. all kinds of safeguards. i met with george bush when he talked about this program when it was first revealed by the new york times. when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is the underlying philosophy of this program. that is the purpose. we are talking again. it tends to spill over into people thinking we are monitoring their content. we are not. these are metadata. it is outside of the envelope that is sent to your mailbox. that information. and the date stamp and the postage. >> jonathan stray, do you think the director painted an accurate picture of the program? >> i think there is a problem with metadata. it is not the content. who you talk to, who do associate with is in many cases more valuable the private information of what you are saying. there is looking at networks of people and communities and looking at their patterns of influence. i think it is metadata -- oversight -- and they have posters on the wall and regulations and agents monitoring it. i suspect there have been strong and good faith efforts to p
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
, george bush, done marijuana, widely suspected of doing cocaine. the guy before him, bill clinton, did marijuana. >> he didn't inhale spend no, no, no. he said he didn't inhale last night he said he didn't inhale, but the point is that those guys are more typical of drug users than what you have been told and what you think. that's not to say that people don't have problems because there are people who have problems, and that's a small percentage. we know how to deal with those problems. the way we deal with the problem is not our current drug policy, because our current drug policy ends up with too many of our folks in jail. >> i'm going to pick up on that again, but i wanted to stay with trayvon for a minute because we know that even outside here on these streets today there are all kinds of protests all over the country reacting to the verdict of acquittal in the george zimmerman case a week ago. thousands of people are apparently protesting, and on the eve of the protest come yesterday president obama, he gave a very, for him, emotional speech where he said that he could have been
. >> thank you, jim. in a rare interview this morning, former president george w. bush talked about the enormity of the situation currently going on at the white house. as the president weighs whether to take military action in syria. >> the president's got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make. >> here to give us insight into that difficult decision is the former u.s. ambassador to morocco and former middle east adviser mark ginsburg. what i want to talk to you about is the careful line administrations have to tow when dealing with whether or not it's a declaration or war or just military action. we've seen several examples in the recent past including the 1983 invasion of grenada, the bombing of libya in 1986, invasion of panama in '98, et cetera. i think it's important for our viewers to really understand the best way to describe in the clearest sense the difference between using military force and a declaration of war. >>
clinton's 13. there was a president in between. there was george bush's eight. i think the other thing we have to really pay attention to here, richard, is the fact that the president has also made monumental strides of appointments of judges. the only two supreme court nominations he's had, he has apied two women. i think it's terribly unfortunate for us to look at isolated incidents rather than the total picture. >> if he not to pick yellin and goes with summers, you're fine with that? >> i don't have a personal opinion about who he picks. i think it's most important that he picks a person that works well with the overall obama administration and does their very best to advance policies that not only impact the overall american public, but also people of color and women. so whoever is best suited for that job, that is who should be put in that role. >> robert, how does the administration navigate a summers decision if they decide to go that ain wway? >> two things. one, miss yellin is very qualified to be the next fed chair. clearly she is the vice chair and understands the system and v
food and snacks. >>> to politics now. former president george w. bush addressed his recent health and surgery a short time ago. take a listen. >> i had a stent placed into my ladr artery and i'm feeling pretty good. i wish i was a teenager so i could be out on my mountain bike today, but i'm slowly, slowly recovering. >> san diego mayor will step down today following numerous allegations of sexual harassment. a special election for his replacement is set for september 19th. >>> the justice department announced it will not challenge laws that legalize marijuana in washington and colorado. the policy could encourage other states to consider similar laws. for the first time california firefighters are using a drone to help fight the rim fire. drones are also being put to use in other creative ways. look at this music video by phoenix. intermediate with, yep, they used a drone. ♪ (announcer) scottrade knows our clients trade and invest their own way. with scottrade's smart text, i can quickly understand my charts, and spend more time trading. their quick trade bar lets my account fo
in a terrible position. >> we heard from george w. bush, he was on fox. he said this, listen to his care fiscal cli carefully constructed words. >> the president has a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. the president has to make a tough call, brian pip kn. i know you're trying to subtley trying to republic me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> in contrast, jimmy carter through the jimmy carter center in atlanta issued a statement saying "a punitive military response without a u.n. security council mandate or broad support from nato and the arab league would be illegal under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war." two different presidents -- >> do you think president obama is sending him a thank you note? >> he's sending bush a thank you note, not jimmy carter necessarily. >> bush does what he always does, which is -- >> he's been very consistent, says nothing. >> stays out of it. i didn't like mr. assa
everything we could to overthrow the democratically-elected government of president aristide. george bush blocked loans from the interamerican development foundation of $146 million loans for education, water and things like that. the international republican institute arranged and organized the opposition to it and then we as a country trained rebel soldiers in the dominican republic, trained and armed them to come to haiti to overthrow the government and then the last analysis, those were a pulse didn't figure into it. bush carried out the coup himself on american soldiers who arrived at the home of the president and took him off at 3:00 in the morning to the central african republic. we have to had to go there. maxine waters, a jamaican parliamentarian and sharon webster and the president's lawyer flew off to rescue him to bring him back to jamaica and then condoleezza rice threatened to make the jamaican government -- threatened to make it very difficult for them if jamaica accepted aristide even for a matter of days before he went to south africa. all because he said the minimum inco
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story

president george w. bush made his case for going to war with iraq and why mideast dictator was an essential step for both the united states and the world. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with biological and chemical weapons, possesses ballistic missiles, promotes international terror, and seeks nuclear weapons. >> nearly 11 years later another u.s. president is explaining why he feels getting involved in the middle east is in the best interest of the u.s. people. my next guest though says the similarities between the two conflicts are few. jane newton small is a terrific reporter and times magazine reporter. you've written an article that a lot of team are talking about for "time," "six ways syria 2013 isn't iraq in 2003." differences you say include how the u.s. is handling the regime, the time commitment given by the u.s., the support from the arab world and yooirp, weapons of mass destruction, and how much support there is from congress. let's begin with the first difference you list. regime change. explain
believe that george bush and our supreme court expect our supreme court that it is more dangerous than al qaeda. the rulings that they have made are so naive, one that i can think of is the it's the same as businesses the same as individuals and anyone with common sense knows a corporation is not an individual. but it is now. and the idea of it being the supreme court unjustly gave then george bush the presidency, our country is divided and we will stay divided until then and when it will be corrected, i do not know but some day the justice has to come out of it. host: hope your voice improvs. om the next year the primary challenge for senator mitch mcconnell and his democratic opponent he is expected to face on led by piece mitch mcconnell pointing out failing to back the push to defund the signature health care law even if that means shutting down government. the supporters on friday with the subject line mcconnell surrenders to read on obama care and senator mitch mcconnell is accused of raising the white flag. they say he needs to start with the state-wide media campaign. he now ru
? joining me is george w. bush's security advisor and the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and book author. welcome to both of you. bill richardson, how damaging is it potentially to president obama and his plans for military action in syria that the british government and british prime minister david cameron suffered a defeat in parliament with a clear will from the british people and many members of parliament not to take military action in syria? >> i think the president has to be very careful, and he is being careful. only 25% of the american people support military action in syria. secondly, we have to avoid the iraq war where there are no weapons of mass destruction so you have to have proof. thirdly, the president has to get a broad international coalition, other wise he hands a propaganda victory and assad can say very few countries support the united states with a strike. so i think he has to be deliberate on the military side that the strikes work to our advantage and to find ways to arm the rebels and destroy the command and control centers but at the u.n., too, i think even tho
totally critical of the unilateral as special of the george w.bush saying if we have to, we'll go it alone. >>> with france and turkey as well. what would be the objective? >> this the also something that's very interesting. the administration has made a total the objective of any military strike against syria and the objective of actually ending this now long-running civil war in the country. question is whether or not they can actually thread that needle. they basically want to send a signal t to bashar al asaad firt of all you're punished for using chemical weapons in violation of international law and we will deter you from doing it in the future. you can keep on fighting but have to do it conventional. >> will the u.s. military strike change the calculus in this revolution/civil war at all? >> i don't think it will. i don't think the administration wants to do so. i think there are many voices within the administration saying if the opposition -- it may be fragmented but -- >> my apologies we lost stewart. a senior fellow at the the council and foreign relations. in israel many people
at two other instances in which an american president used force, in the case of george bush in iraq, he had a congressional authorization and one u.n. resolution. in syria he has, president obama has neither of those but i think the u.s. congress and many in the need yaw are saying, what about libya? i mean we went to war in libya without a congressional authorization. we spent one billion dollars. we had 220 tomahawk missile strikes, et cetera, et cetera. what do we have at the end of it? we have benghazi with dead american ambassador and three diplomats and a country not really controlled by its own government. are we any better off? so there is so much skepticism as lauren pointed out, within the media but it mostly is based on america's previous experiences using force projecting force, mostly on its own. jon: let me take you to the second part of that charles krauthamer column because he touches on some of those points that you just made, judy. he also wrote last year, mr. obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. this year he grandly declared that the entire war o

and compare it for us in modern history, current history for example contrasted with the way george w. bush took this nation to the war. >> if president bush took america to war quite quickly and didn't nurture a bipartisan consensus in some ways he used it around for the hid. ki wasn't able to persuade other countries, many other countries with the exception of britain and a few others that it was worth fighting and so america more or less went in to hit by himself. the book tells the story of an incredible effort over the course of two years to build a domestic consensus in favor of internationalism and ultimately intervention and he was prepared to use other countries as proxy's by allowing the brits and the french. he was prepared to take this kind and roosevelt was criticized almost as much he felt he was going too fast. he felt he was going too slowly. he did it carefully and slowly. that is the reaction to the events and get. when you step back and look at the whole run there is a direction as kurt says he knew where he wanted to end up but he wanted to do it in a way that took the c
, and compare it with what current history contrast to the way george debut bush took them but different conflicts of different styles but if they took him to work quite quickly she could nurture more into in some ways he would beat them around the headed cannot persuade many other countries that it was worth fighting so roosevelt is the opposite this book tells the story of this incredible effort although subtle over the course of two years to build the of bipartisan domestic consensus in adults and early intervention and prepared to use other countries to feed from behind -- leave them behind and was prepared to take his time. in fact, the result was criticized almost as much to felt he was going too fast period he did it it. >> is a very clear direction but he wanted to do is no way that that the country did not into the ward / e merge united and ready for the fight. >> again and 11 came at the beginning. >> and pearl harbor helped. it totally destroyed isolationism in the united states at that time. but by then roosevelt had marginalized the bodies through the danish with the decisio
them up. we saw that with george w. bush and saw that with john mccain and saw that with mitt romney when the republican primary voters wanted to win more than they wanted to be right in their own minds. i think they are sick of compromising their ideals to win. now they want some guy like ted cruz who just says what they think is true. and they really think getting rid of obama care will save the country. they don't care if it takes shutting down the government. in fact, they think shutting down the government is a good idea and ted cruz is with them. he doesn't think it's a problem. after all the post office closes on the weekends. >> i wish we could talk more. thank you. >>> a wall street trail blazer for women has died at 80. michelle is here to talk about that. mickey as she was known by some, she broke into the all boys club. that is just one of the reasons as to why she is a legend to many. >> yeah, she was the very first woman to actually have a seat at the new york stock exchange. that means could trade at the new york stock exchange. that was back in 1967. she would be the
president george h w bush, defense secretary sounded a lot like president obama. in an interview with the post, aspen said what we are doing is sending a message against the people who were responsible for planning this operation. if anybody asks the same people to do it again, they will remember this message. and experts say this isn't about sending a message to syria at all. but to another american enemy right next door. >> it really is about the president's credibility when dealing with other countries. specifically iran. he has told iran that all options are on the table, including military options. to prevent them from gaining a nuclear weapon. if he lets it go in syria, the threat in iran is weakened. experts kept coming back with why now, when president obam ha has so clearly stated this is a red line. paul, thank you very much. it would seem after listening to those reports that if there was a plan, it has gone terribly wrong. what change was done before the sort of turn tide and began to talk about an attack. >> i think that spoke to their closest allies and i think perh
them because they won their freedom. of the president. we george bush blocked loans from the inter-american development of foundation of 146 million. loans for water, education, things like that. the international republican institute arranged and organized the opposition to it. we as a country trained soldier in the dominican republic. trained and armed those rebels didn't figure in to it. the bush -- when the american soldiers arrived at the home of the president and took him off at 3:00 in the morning to the central african republican. we had to go there. maxine waters, a jamaican parliament tear, sharon hay webster, the president's lawyer flew off with a plane to rescue him and bring him back to jamaica and condoleezza rice threatened the jamie can government to make it very difficult for them. if jamaican accepted it. all because he said the minimum income ought to be raised from $1 a day to $2 a day. that the sweat shop owners essentially white in haiti combined with american authorities to get him thrown out of office. if you look at the history of american foreign aid. what
and much more popular than george bush but that glory is fleeting because they are in an untenable situation where their success is an immediate unfavorable referendum that everybody before them, do they have certain personality qualities and ambitions and visions that make them suspect by their peers. sort of like this 19th century western figure that we see in 20th century films where it's high noon, ethan edwards, the magnificent seven, the man is shot liberty balance. we bring these people in and they are suspect figures and we all want shane to do something to get rid of the -- but it's better he walks out the door. it's better that high noon will kaine takes the bag and throws it down and says i've had enough. whether we like it or not it didn't end very well. themistocles committed suicide in persia. belisarius ended up as a beggar on the streets of constantinople humiliated at his emperor. sherman was called crazy and called a terrorist. he spent most of his post-war career trying to defend what it in a very effective way but he wasn't popular like grant or matthew ridgway.
believed that george w. bush needed to go back to congress for reauthorization of the war in iraq. but as president of the united states, he intervened in libya. he had a surge in afghanistan. and he didn't go to congress for permission on either of those. so i think it's a real interpretation of how -- of how you interpret presidential power and whether he has the constitutional authority to do this on his own. but if history is any guide, i would have to say that president after president does act without congressional authorization. i mean, the last time we really did this was in 2002. and so i think that this president's going to say he's on -- he's on firm ground. what he needs to get is public opinion. >> which seems to have evolved since our polling early in may. numbers are dwindling when it comes to support. jay, gloria mentioned iraq. we heard the president make a big distinction on this. he said it would not be like iraq. take a listen. >> if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of, you know, iraq,
george bush on deck. >> brian: i just told him he looked good. he said he must have looked like hell before. he looks good now. guys, back to you. >> anna: 11 minutes after the hour. we have headlines. a developing story overnight. terrifying moments during the broncos game. crowds watched as a man fell from the escalator. he was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. good news, he was conscious. no word if alcohol was a factor. >>> also breaking late last night, police in north carolina issuing an amber alert for a little girl you're about to see after she was snatched from a car in a grocery store park lot. the one-year-old girl was inside a car at 9:00 o'clock last night at the food lion in high point, north carolina. moments ago, her grandmother made an emotional plea for her safe return. >> whoever took the vehicle, i'm not sure whether or not you are aware that the baby was in the car or not. once you figured it out, i just want her to be taken to a safe place. >> anna: the vehicle described as a 2003 white chevy suburban with north carolina license plates, bjx 1565. any
not made a decision yet, former president george w. bush is weighing in. >> the president has a tough decision to make and if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he made mischief. the president has to make a tough call. i know you are trying to suddenly rope me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> our chief political analyst gloria borger joins me from washington. you listened to secretary of state john kerry today. you heard the former president, reporters trying to ask questions of him. it's not a matter of what do we do about it, we be the united states? >> i think if you listened to the secretary of state, it was very clear that he believed he didn't need to wait for information from the weapons inspectors, from the united nations. he said very clearly that a u.n. investigators can't tell us anything we don't already know. and between the secretary of state and a background call that senior administration officials had with journalists, it's very clear they b
bush, and george w. bush. they say that, quote, there is no longer any credible scientific debate, end quote, about climate change. and they also point out that our window for action is shrinking. they say they support the actions that the president is now taking under the clean air act to reduce carbon pollution, and they call on congress to start the overdue debate about what bigger steps are needed domestically and internationally. and they conclude with this very powerful statement. quote, the only uncertainty about our world is how bad these changes will get and how soon what is most clear is that there is no time to waste, end quote. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. for what purpose does the gentleman from arizona rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> mr. speaker, i rise today to address attorney general holder's misinterpretation of federalism and his disregard for our system of checks and balances. the supreme court was clear in shelby vs. hold
. there are health reasons why george h.w. bush could not make the trip to washington, d.c. george w. bush just did have heart surgery, although i think i saw him at the smu football game last night. there are also apparently some dispute over how much notice some of the no-shows got from organizers. while we can quibble over they got one, two or three weeks notice, what we do know is this milestone event, the 50th anniversary of the march on washington, was not one that republicans marked on their own calendars and made it a priority to commemorate. after all, they didn't have to be invited to speak to just show up and pay their respects. let's not pretend this is surprising because part of the story of the civil rights movement, a big part is how it fundamentally remade both political parties. leaving one a lot more interested in and responsive to the plight of black americans than the other. this graph tells the story. it shows which party black americans have identified with since 1936. you can see in the early years there around the depression and world war ii, it's basically a tie. african-am
that both in terms of his experience here at the george george bush institute but more partly in terms of his experience as an army officer. >> thank you robert payday would like to start out by wishing congratulations to our newest citizens. my experience over the past 24 years as active military service has been in our our most engage service-oriented and patriotic citizens and servicemembers are our newest. and so as the director of the military service initiatives here i had the honor and responsibility to lead the bush institute's effort to honor the service and sacrifice of all of their post-9/11 veterans military servicemembers and their families but also to empower and unite the efforts of non-profits businesses universities individual citizens and communities to improve the well-being of those veteran servicemembers and their families but also to release their potential to continue to serve as national assets in their communities after their military service is over. and so since september 11, 2001, 2.3 million members of this country have gone -- worn the uniform in iraq or a
aide and aid to president george w. bush and republican strategist. welcome here today. this is a tough story. it is a sad story and because the president did input himself into those other cases, leslie, that's why this question is being raised. >> no doubt but it's a story you just reported, martha, regarding world war ii veteran. i think that although it is disgusting anytime somebody loses their life, especially to a crime whether it is the hand of a gun or not which i think is definitely another issue and as we've seen statistically the violence, crime in america is down except among our youth. violent crime is up among our youth and something we have to address. when we lose somebody who is young, it is awful. the reason as you trail yaw made a comment, this is their citizen. the reason the president should make a comment people feel because of trayvon martin, the race card, this is a young man but i do think it is naive and unreal listic to expect the president to comment anytime there is victim of a crime. martha: of course it is. of course it is. >> with we care -- >> i underst
follow him in office ronald reagan. he also got a congratulatory call from george h.w. bush. and here's part of the call from the influential southern baptist evangelist, billy graham: >> woodruff: that same night, president nixon spoke with defense secretary elliot richardson, whom he had just announced would become acting attorney general. in the speech, mr. nixon had said richardson would have full authority to name a special prosecutor to investigate the watergate affair, but on the phone, there was a different message. >> woodruff: a few weeks later, richardson appointed law professor archibald cox to be special prosecutor. here now to help us understand some of the historical context, we turn to veteran journalist and author marvin kalb who covered the watergate scandal. he is a senior adviser at the pulitzer center. and ken hughes. he studies recordings from the nixon presidency at the university of virginia's miller center. gentlemen, welcome to you both. marvin kalb, let me start with you. this is a tough day for president nixon. he had just asked his two top aides in the whi
of healthcare than previous problems we have had in healthcare expansion. under george w. bush, we expanded the prescription drug part d. i opposed that. there was not a governmental plan available. universalit was not pricing. the day after that bill was theed, i worked along with people who oppose the bill to make sure was implemented as best that we could. we work together to make it work. we are not seeing that in the affordable care act. it is almost a political isolation of this issue which is calling it politics rather than trying to make it work the best that you and seeking changes that should be changed. i'm hoping we can get to that point and we can get to the resources necessary to make sure this law is implemented fairly. it is not going to be a one year implementation of the personal mandate. it will take years. >> you can watch all of his .org.ks online at c-span night.rrow helpmate to him throughout his put coker. newspapersead the and underline passages she thought important for him to read. she was a regular fixture in the gallery and congress. typically, congress would en
president george w. bush 2002. before being the administrator of the faa, she was the acting and deputy administrator of the federal highway administration. she was the logan airport, in boston, manager. she currently heads the u.s. public-private partnership at jpmorgan. most importantly, she is a past chairman of the bipartisan policy board of directors, and continues to be a board member with us. in 1997, when you first took over faa, the agency was spending about $9 billion. shortly before you arrived, the agency estimated you would need $10 billion annually to meet growing passenger usage, and protecting the safety of the flying public. as i recall, the budget resolutions that year were only going to provide about $7.5 billion, a $2.5 billion gap. further complicating your job as you are coming in, and assessment of the agency was mandated by 1996, the agency reauthorization act. and it concluded, and i quote, the faa had no system to account for its cost, and managers could generally not manage money properly. simply stated, how did you successfully transform the faa while managin
